We will not have school next week.  I have sent home a small homework packet with the children.  Please make sure they spend a little bit of time each day reading, playing math games and completing the packet.  We will continue the WIDA test when we return, and our next NWEA test will be here soon.  Doing a little work every day will help your child succeed on the tests.  Thanks for your support!

Have a wonderful week off.  I’ll see you on Monday, February 26th. 🙂

Officer Aaron

Our school resource officer from the Dearborn Police Department would like you to follow him on Instagram.  Officer Aaron is a popular man in our room.  The children and I love when he visits us!  He stops by often to bond with the students, and we are looking forward to his next visit in March when he will read a story to our class.  If you have an Instagram account, please consider following his page to see all of the great things he does for our Miller students. 🙂

Once you are on Instagram, you can search for his page @officer_aaron_

WIDA Testing

Most of our class will begin taking the WIDA test tomorrow.  The test will be used to determine whether a student is an English-language learner and what type of services they need.  Please make sure your child gets to bed on time tonight and eats a healthy breakfast.  Due to our testing time, you will not be able to visit our class after the PTA meeting tomorrow.  Feel free to visit other classrooms, as well as our special area classes.

Important Day Tomorrow

Not only is it our 100th day of school and Valentine’s Day tomorrow, it is also Count Day.  It is very important that your child come to school tomorrow on time.  The amount of money our school gets to educate your children is determined by how many students come to school tomorrow morning.  Please make sure your child is here by 8:30.  Thanks for your support!

PTA Meeting

Our next PTA meeting will be on Thursday.  After the meeting, you are welcome to visit classrooms, however our class will be taking the WIDA Reading Test.  You will not be able to visit us on Thursday, but you are welcome to visit at another time.

Report Cards

Report cards were sent home with the children today.  Please sign the envelope on the second line and return it to me tomorrow.  You may keep the report card.  Please look over the grades with your child and make a plan on how he/she can improve for the next marking period.  Also, make sure to praise them for the great job they are doing so far this year.
